that the g.o.p. was flat on its back and wouldn't be able to recover and come out of the wilderness obama victory for months or years. now the first election called the g.o.p. has the win in their column. it raises questions what happens for democrats, particular lay creigh deeds democrat. moderate centrist from a blue dog state. there have to be concerns on the democratic party about whether or not the obama agenda and the democratic congressional agenda in washington makes it difficult for democrats to get elected in places that are red states or won by john mccain in 2008 or are just generally conservative. it is a cautionary tale out of virginia for democrats and one that prats republicans are purely delighted about. bill: that means that virginia was a blue state for just one year. and then i wonder what and we have to do some reporting on this for tomorrow. i wonder what the main issue was driving the vote in virginia. was it health care? was it afghanistan? i wonder what it was? do you know? >> well, there were a number of things. we know from the exit polls, for instance, that the

some political pain on president obama. many people think tomorrow's races on the first test of the obama star power and political power. is that true? karl rove joins us live. karl, i have been tipped off that you have been madly scribbling. what do you have there? >> there is a summary of the races, which i will be happy to show you at the appropriate moment. it is amazing at how they can bring things together in sort of the complex, the labyrinth form here. greta: i cannot resist the tease -- elaborate form here. >> and virginia, there have been nine polls since one week ago, and nine out of nine polls, the republican bob mcdonnell is in the lead. in chris christie, he leads if you averaged them all out by less than 1%, 0.7%, but the movement does to appear to be in his direction. the quinnipiac poll had chris christie down to jon corzine, and today, they released a poll showing him up by two, still a very close race, as you said, in new jersey, and it may come down to the wire. greta: new jersey, new york, and virginia, these are three very important races, are they not ?
the minority community will not turn out in the numbers because barack obama is not running. he got everybody out. he got 12,000 people in newark, new jersey. if they don't come out, governor corzine is in a lot of trouble. that's why he closed a 14% gap ex-made it a dead heat. he seems to have lost momentum. can we talk about new york district 23? steve: absolutely. this is the crazy case where the republican candidate dropped out a couple of days ago and then threw her support behind the democrat. then you've got the fellow who was energized by the tea party movement, doug hoffman who had just been a regular guy, as he described himself. and now yesterday up in the 23rd district of new york, joe biden was stumping on behalf of the challenger. also, hoffman -- also, joe biden yesterday suggested that rush limbaugh had, quote, hand-picked hofman to run. and hoffman yesterday called that notion ridiculous. he said, "i've never spoken to rush limbaugh. i have no idea where he got that information." gretchen: you have to say hat's off to a guy, or gal who decides, hey, i'm just going to get into
at home and abroad, to govern the country. it's a serious challenge for president obama, who soon has to decide whether to send tens of thousands of extra troops to combat the taliban. partly on whether he can trust karzai. many agree it will take more than just military might to meet those goals requiring karzai to live up his promises of boosting his own security forces and provide a table government. jeremy, vinita? >>> attorney general eric holder is taking heat from congress to try top terror suspects in new york city. republican senators argued a civilian trial would give suspected 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammad and others a world stage for propaganda. they said a civilian jury could acquit him. holder says that will not happen. >>> the senate has finally released a version of the health care reform bill. the total cost, $849 billion over 10 years. senate democrats claim it would cut the deficit by $127 billion. they promise coverage to 94% of americans. democrats say they will raise money for the plan through higher payroll taxes for the rich and taxes on cosmetic
obama brought out so many more democrats. as far as geography, places like camden, new jersey, new ark, new jersey -- heavily african- american counties. if gov. corzine is turning out strong numbers there and winning by margins of 70/30, he will probably win the election. at the same time, there are a handful of gop leading counties in the state. if you see chris christie, the republican challenger, taking those with over 60%, he may be on his way to victory tonight. the big enchilada is the largest county in new jersey. it is historically a swing county. if chris christie can match or win there, he will win the election. no republican statewide has ever run the race in new jersey without this county. host: what about the impact of the third-party candidate? >> chris daggett, the independent, was taking upwards of 20% in some polls, but he has relief faded in recent weeks. he is back to single digits. in talking to folks here, they're uncertain of what is impact will be. the democrats believe the closer he is to 10%, the better chance to have. corzine is probably not going to get 50%
is there in politics, the role of the media, and assessing the obama presidency. also, tuesday night, the first state dinner as president obama welcomes the indian prime minister. . . . but i have no way of knowing what the position is. there have been rumors all along here. number one and number two. the focus of the media, seems to me has just been exclusively on the troop number, where as the issue is much broader than that. so that there are going to be many elements i'm sure in this decision. number one, it may include a troop number. but that number may include, if there is troop increase, would include trainers, i assume, people who are enablers. a key part of the troop increase question is what number of combat troops would be involved. and then on top of that you've got the other aspects of the policy in afghanistan. of course, strategy coming first where wl you're going to have a counterinsurgency and counterterrorism strategy. but on top of that all the other leapts of strategy. not just with additional combat troops with the trainers, trainers with army and police, with the equipment issu
to ask you as well, an israeli minister has made the headlines today by calling the obama administration "awful." what is that about? >> you can see here in the most popular she brewed daily -- basically, the obama administration is horrible. she is a cultural administration secretary here. he says there is a lot of pressure being put on the prime minister over the settlement freeze and she does not then be the position he is being put in. the prime minister's office was very quick, i will tell you, do distance themselves from these comments. jamie: there is a lot going on in the region. we will be talking to an ambassador about the situation in iran as well. thank you. kelly: new developments in the international community's response to iran's nuclear ambitions. the iaea voting to sensor iran moving forward on its nuclear programs. the iaea supported the resolution, backed by the u.s., russia, china, britain, and other nations. the iaea's decision essentially marks the first action it has taken against iran in nearly four years. israel's ambassador to the u.n. will be with us. daniel am

headquarters, gitmo and the corn field, could bring terrorist trials to downtown chicago and the obama administration considering transferring them to the thompson correctional facility and it is 160 miles west of the windy city and could be the new home for about 100 gitmo terror suspects and the idea already sparking a big potential battle in congress. caroline shivley live in washington with the latest on this, caroline, good morning. how would this work if the federal government bought the prison from the state and put the gitmo detainees in it? >> reporter: the state of illinois would sell thompson correctional facility to the federal bureau of preference and they'd turn it into a super max prison with a portion of it to house, 100 guantanamo bay detainees and the rest of the facility would be used for federal inmates and an administration official tells fox no decision is made yet but it is definitely an option, eric. >> eric: local illinois officials are for the plan. including the governor. why do they support it? >> reporter: well, it sounds like this money, mainly. and it is
. happening now, the buildup to president obama's big announcement on afghanistan. he's starting to spread the word about troop level and strategy before he speaks to the nation and the world tomorrow night. the manhunt for the suspected shooter in the deaths of four police officers. the spotlight is on an ex-convict now on the loose in washington, the state and former presidential candidate who commuted his sentence and let him out of jail and tough questions for the white house about the now famous presidential party-crashers. how did it happen, and what's the secret service doing to stop it from happening again? i'm wolf blitzer in cnn's command center for breaking news, politics and extraordinary reports from around the world. you're in "the situation room." >>> president obama is putting more top officials in the loop today about his new war plan strategy in afghanistan. his long-awaited public announcement on troop levels a little over 24 hours from now, and there's a lot of anticipation and concern about more american lives on the line along with lots more u.s. taxpayer dollars. let
development in the war in afghanistan. president obama has rejected his four options for increasing troop levels. the president reportedly wants a clear exit strategy, and the entire timeline for a decision is very much in question. in the middle box, were now of more taxes coming your way to help pay for health care reform. more information about harry reid's secret healthcare bill, and sources say it calls for higher taxes, but no one seems to know if it lowers premiums. in the bottom box, another 505,000 americans have lost their jobs. evidence that the government has again overestimated the number of jobs saved and created by all of that stimulus money. martha: we have breaking news right now out of fort hood. let's go and listen in to the new developments we are getting on the charges against major hasan. >> we will conduct a memorial service recognizing the sacrifice and service of their fallen comrades. even as we move the resumption of normal activity, we do so with the utmost respect for our families, as we would never want to minimize the enormity of their sacrifice. third
saying that president obama has the information he needs to make a decision. we got that word late last night after the president met with his national security team for a ninth time. our elaine quijano was working the story from the pentagon and what are you learning about the president's decision? >> well, kiran, we know that meeting was slated to start last night in the white house situation room around 8:00 local time, and we're told that it wrapped up some two hours later at 10:00 p.m. afterwards white house press secretary robert gibbs described the meeting as a rigorous final meeting and he said that president obama now has the information he wants and needs to make a decision. he also said that the president plans to announce that decision within days. the president has met with members of his war council since september nine times. one thing that was interesting to note in the photo that white house released of last night's meeting we saw someone there who's not traditionally thought of as part of the president's war council, that is the president's budget chief, peter orszag.
coming together for a nuclear-free world? as president obama makes his first ever visit to china as commander-in-chief, the u.s. and russia clear a major hurdle for a new armed control deal. in the meantime, the president shares sharp words for another country that's become a thorn in america's side. fallout from the decision to put suspected al-qaeda tris on trial in new york city. democrats defending the move, republicans slamming it. >> when the foreman of that jury stands up and delivers the victim, not empowered by the religious if a natsism, but the constitution, he'll know he's wrong. this seems to be the rights of terrorists and lack of concerns for the public. >> and a plan to put gitmo detainees in america's heartland causing another big controversy. why some in one small town see it as an economic boon. plus, a massive offensive in afghanistan underway right now. u.s. and french troops going after the taliban. and just when you thought the housing market couldn't get any worse, why selling a foreclosed home may now be harder than ever before. and an all-out push by one
